Preparation Is Key!

PREPARATION IS KEY!

One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence is preparation. ~Arthur Ashe
 
If the opportunity of a lifetime presented itself, would you be ready? What steps are you taking now to be prepared? Just like you feed your body, you must feed your mind as well. 
You have to put in the time, the effort, the work.  Zig Ziglar said, “The most practical, beautiful, workable philosophy in the world won’t work – if you won’t.”

Doing Something for the First Time…

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

Yesterday was my first time presneting in front of a group of people. I was not behind the scenes, or off camera, and it wasn’t only audio.  I was live and up in front of the room!  It is a great feeling to have taken the step.  Personal growth feels good!

Believe in yourself and step out of your comfort zone!  Only you can be the best at being you.  Although there is improvement to be made, the most difficult part is over after you’ve taken the step.  Now just keep the momentum going and let nothing stop you.  You have to have a success mindset.  First you must believe it, then go out and do it.

I strongly believe in investing in myself and my self development for my personal life as well as for the success of my business.  There is always something to learn or someone to learn from.  I am always a student.  It doesn’t matter if it is reading, listening to audiobooks, watching webinars or researching videos on YouTube.  Just keep learning and growing.

There are people that I want to know that you can do it no matter what others tell you, but what is most important is what you tell yourself.  Be careful who you listen to, including YOU!

I was very pleased to have family members at our event as well.  A big part of my WHY is to be able to do things with and for my grandchildren that I may not have been able to do with my own.  And having them there with us yesterday was a blessing!  #gratefulheart
